Meanings of Resource Compiler Messages


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows Software Development Kit (SDK) versions 3.0, 3.1


The following describes what the RC compiler is telling you in its output when it is writing resources

      <id>.<Predefined resource type> <bytes> 

where <id> is the #define that you give a resource or the string in uppercase; <predefined resource type> is one of the following

   #define CURSOR        1
   #define BITMAP        2
   #define ICON          3
   #define MENU          4
   #define DIALOG        5
   #define STRING        6
   #define FONTDIR       7
   #define FONT          8
   #define ACCELERATORS  9
   #define RCDATA       10 

and <bytes> is the size of the resource.

NOTE: In order to have the output described above generated, you must use the -v (verbose) switch for the resource compiler when binding a resource to an executable.
